Greene County Parks & Trails has temporarily closed Narrows Reserve in Beavercreek due to overcrowding.
"At sunset tonight, the Narrows Reserve (all entrances) will be closed until further notice due to overcrowding. The gates will be locked and foot traffic is not permitted either."
Narrows Reserve is one of the finest, yet often overlooked parks in the area. With close to six miles of beautiful trails along the Little Miami River, it's a favorite destination for hiking, running and water activities, including canoeing.
Greene County Parks & Trails has also closed the Lovely Nature Playscape at the Russ, Fitness Trail at Hobson and Scout Dog Park at Pierce Park. In addition, Karohl Park will be allowed 6 cars only, for a limited time.
In an earlier message asking people to "do their part", the parks department posted some useful advice for visitors:
Another popular park in the area, Charleston Falls Nature Preserve in Miami County was also closed earlier this week for overcrowding.
